Motivate your students with this no-prep Context Clues Bump Games Pack!

Included are 12 engaging context clues 'BUMP' games, which are perfect for practicing how to determine the meaning of words in context! These context clues games are differentiated into 4 levels so that all of your students can access the games at their level!

Level 1 - 2nd/3rd grade vocabulary words (33 words included)

Level 2 - 3rd/4th grade vocabulary words (33 words included)

Level 3 - 4th/5th grade vocabulary words (33 words included)

Level 4 - 5th/6th grade vocabulary words (33 words included)

These games are so simple to use, and take a minimal amount of prep. Simply print out the game sheet, get 2 dice, 2 game pieces, and 20 counters, and you'll be ready to go!

To play, students will roll the dice and find the corresponding sentence. Then, they have to use their context clues to determine the meaning of the underlined word and cover it with their counter. Students have to get all of the counters onto the game board without getting "bumped" off by the other player.

Included with this Context Clues Bump Games Pack:

  • Instructions for play
  • 12 different bump games (3 for each of the 4 levels)
